Christmas tree recycling

Have a green Christmas and recycle your Christmas tree

We will be collecting real Christmas trees through the fortnightly garden waste service as a special festive offering to our garden waste customers. If you are a garden waste subscriber you can place your tree out for collection with your bin and/or sacks.

Before you put your Christmas tree out for collection, please make sure all decorations and lights are removed and if your tree is over 6ft, please cut it in half.

Alternatively, you can take your Christmas tree to one of our collection points. The collection dates for this year are Saturday 2 January to Sunday 31 January 2021 and a list of the collection points will be available in November.
